ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

Bellini’s bel canto masterpiece is a seldom-seen telling of Romeo and Juliet, the infamous “star-crossed lovers” engulfed by rival political factions on the brink of war. Known to us through Shakespeare but inspired by writings of the Italian Renaissance, I Capuleti gives thrilling voice to one of the world’s most overwhelming and vital love stories. Opera Omaha’s new production by ONE Festival Artistic Director James Darrah is a dark and rich exploration of love and loss illuminated by a powerful ensemble of world-class artists including soprano Andriana Chuchman as Juliet and mezzo soprano Daniela Mack as her Romeo.
